{We forget the numbers so We may have erred in the title}

#1. http://www.christianpost.com/news/alabama-megachurch-wants-own-police-force-governor-may-allow-it-176331/

According to AL.com, a bill proposing that Briarwood Presbyterian Church and Briarwood Christian School get their own police department passed 9–2 in the House Public Safety Committee about two weeks ago.

Some lawmakers argue that allowing a private church to have its own police force is a slippery slope.

Democrat Rep. Chris England also raised concern about who the police officer would answer to. A church official said the officers would answer to the leadership of the church.

England raised concerns, however, about transparency. Questions were raised about a drug investigation at the Briarwood Christian School in 2015 and whether a private, internal police department would cover up a drug problem.

We understand why the church is asking for this but we agree with the concerns and wonder how wise it would be to allow a private police force to operate on church grounds.

Conservative radio host Bryan Fischer warned that threats of spiritual warfare and reports of witches placing curses on President Donald Trump should be taken seriously. He pointed to Jesus Christ who warned of “dark spirits” in the world

Pray for your leaders. if you don’t then evil has an easier time of manipulating them and that is not good for the believer. Praying for one’s leaders, even if you do not like them, in time helps the believer as better decisions are made, less persecution and so on.You are helping yourself when you pray for all of them.

#3. http://www.christianpost.com/news/assisted-suicide-sounds-compassionate-but-reality-is-different-human-rights-advocates-say-176070/

Legalizing assisted suicide opens the door for all kinds of human rights abuses, puts a price on human life, and diminishes the dignity of the human being, according to conservative leaders gathered at CPAC.

Wisdom is needed to guide this issue. We are against any form of suicide even though we know people suffer greatly with their diseases. Thou Shalt Not Kill did not leave an escape clause for the terminally ill or chronic sufferers.

When the caretaker inquired about his behavior, “several of the children stated Durham often touched them in a sexual manner or told them to touch themselves while he watched.”

The founder of the home was told about the allegations and confronted Durham in early June 2014. He denied the allegations “but admitted to be struggling with homosexuality and child pornography.” He, however, admitted to church members on June 17 that year that he had performed sex acts on the children.

People have problems, even Christians. BUT we do not run for the hills or circle the wagons and keep the failing Christian from receiving true Christian help. They need the same help everyone does to keep them on the straight and narrow. We cannot afford to turn our backs on them but lead them back to repentance and conquering of their sins through Jesus.

#5. http://www.christianpost.com/news/boys-have-penises-girls-have-vulvas-bus-ad-banned-in-madrid-for-offending-transsexuals-176321/

The Madrid City Council has banned a Catholic group’s full-length bus ad that says “boys have penises, girls have vulvas” over concerns that it might offend “transsexual children.”

Take a chance, tell the truth and offend them.

Madrid City Council Socialists spokeswoman Purificacion Causapie called the bus ad “contrary to the dignity and rights of transsexual children,

Sorry but, the transgendered children are claiming and behaving like something they are not. They lost their dignity a long time ago.
